According to three people briefed on the White House’s position and its recent communications with outside groups, Biden assured Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he was ready to push for filibuster reform. Biden’s pressure would aim to help Schumer convince moderate Democrats to support a carveout to the filibuster, a must for the party if it’s going to pass new voting protections without Republican votes. According to a source briefed on the White House’s position, Biden told Schumer: “Chuck, you tell me when you need me to start making phone calls.”

Azzwipe Manchin fully plans to position himself in the way. Hope he doesn't mind getting slapped around.

Works for me. None of the, “BUT YOU’LL BE SORRY!” arguments have resonated.

Get out and vote, and you’ll have less to worry about what the other side does when in power.

You have a lot of restraint, I must say.
